Ha! Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, a scent of lavender with the sound of cicadas, sun and vacation suddenly invaded you. Everything is there, the sea, the mountains, the rivers, the colorful markets, the olive trees. About 3000 hours of sunshine in 2017 in Taradeau, time to walk, relax and discover in the comfort of our beautiful guesthouse. Even the winter is beautiful here, with the nurseries of Provence, the truffle market of Lorgues for example or the wine festival of our village.
Taradeau, famous wine village in the heart of the Var is a privileged destination for various activities. All the remarkable sites are less than an hour away from the guesthouse of La Bergerie.
Going north, you will discover the Verdon Canyon, Moustiers Sainte Marie, hilltop villages, Tourtour the village in the sky. In the South, it will be Saint Tropez, the massif of “Les Maures”, Toulon, the naturist beaches of Pampelonne and Layet then taking the boat, the island of Levant. By pushing eastwards, the nearest beaches of Sainte Maxime and Fréjus including the famous Esclamandes Saint Aygulf are less than 30 minutes. Then come Saint Raphael, Esterel and Cannes.
We felt in love with this old 18th century sheep barn last year after having worked for many years in the hotel and restaurant industry. Nestled in a valley along the Florieye and backed by an old mill, the charm of our cottages acts upon arrival. A place of character where all sensibilities are welcomed with kindness.
Indeed, we are a Franco-Indian couple and the two cultures are mixed. The definition that best fits our home would be “space of respect and freedom” where everyone can find their place in difference and culture. We like to welcome visitors from all countries, from any orientation, any environment and the links are created in the discovery and respect of each. We also like to introduce you to Kesaram’s Indian culture (he was a personal coach in Mumbai), he will cook you Indian delicacies, give you yoga classes by the pool before breakfast.
Our old building contains rooms with very different charms ranging from romantic attic to honeymoon with balcony overlooking the pool or the large suite.
Many activities are available to you at La Bergerie. In addition to yoga classes, the swimming pool (heated from April to October), the jacuzzi, the sauna are at your disposal. Possibility of naturism in the limit of respect for the sensitivity of other guests.
We also like to organize tailor-made stays by privatizing the house for a small group at a gathering of friends, small wedding, or any other theme and party.
Our hosts speak especially about our friendly welcome while remaining discreet, non-invasive. And of course our meals. The kitchen of Bertrand, ex Toque Blanche wins all the votes. The breakfasts and the table d’hôtes hold a large place here. The whole House, the anti-food industry, the real products. Our breakfast is acclaimed for its quality, diversity and freshness.
At the table of our guesthouse, it will be served either by the fire in winter or on our beautiful covered terrace in summer. Depending on the day and theme, we offer a large communal table or small individual tables for more romantic moments. Barbecue parties, Indian or other themes are organized. All washed down with the good wines of Taradeau.
We are opening this year our table to non-residents by reservation only. Salads meals and desserts from noon to 18.00 in the garden and dinners with a set menu of hosts.
And what gives us a lot of pleasure too: we like to welcome small groups by privatizing the places for themes: bachelor party boy or girl, small weddings, birthdays or simple weekend with family or friends. By privatizing all of our guest rooms, the party will be even more beautiful.
We left the hotel and its volume to relax here. Our life now is focused on hedonism, respect and diversity. We take a great pleasure to please our guests without constraints and their happiness is our best reward. This philosophy is the hallmark of La Bergerie.
We are sorry but the guesthouse is not suitable for children. The reception is gay friendly (We are referenced as bed and breakfast on www.gay-provence.org and www.mon-mariage-gay.com). Possibility to privatize the place for family events, friendly or professional. We are therefore waiting for your visit to discover this unique place that has so charmed us during its discovery.
Namaste from Kesaram, Bertrand and our mascot Noori
